    This is a great link. I especially like the nod to Charlie Pierce’s profile on Tiger. I read the original, and I read some of it again when the scandal broke.

    Yeah, me too, Ian.

    Were you in the program when Charlie Pierce came to residency? I think that was before your time…

  4. In “About Nieman Storyboard”–second paragraph, last line, there’s a word missing. You sure these guys are as good as us?

    @Brian, wow, it seems like the school had some very good writers come through. I seriously hope the funds don’t dry up to the point where WestConn can no longer attract talent.

    Great site Brian! Thanks for posting. I’ve been reading down their list of stories all great examples of journalism.
